in an exclusive interview with nbc news pentagon correspondent jim miklaszewski. take a listen. >> we have reached a point where we have to plan for other options, to include a complete withdrawal by the end of 2014, but it is not an indication that we are not continued to be committed to a mission beyond' 14, because we very much believe the afghans need our help. >> all right. jim joins me this hour from kabul, afghanistan. thank you for taking time to be on the show. >> reporter: you bet, ronan. >> jim, what is the general saying here? >> reporter: well, it almost sounds like on one hand they underhanded and it really is. only one day after president obama ordered the military to come up with plans to withdraw all american forces out of afghanistan by the end of 2014, today general dempsey made a strong case that they should stay. for the first time, he revealed what a post-2014 mission for u.s. forces would look like. he insisted it would not put american men and women directly into harm's way. instead of going out on training missions into combat with afghan forces, those u.s. trainers would
back then and standing outside the hospital for days and the fight that jim has made for his life. and we see all of the victims, newtown and no matter how many victims there are of gun violence, there's such political resistance to closing loopholes. >> the encouraging thing that the american public is behind us. it's about closing that extraordinary disconnect that exists between what the american public wants and what the elected leaders are doing about it. we take tremendous inspiration from what sara and our predecessors at the brady campaign accomplished. this brady law has been tremendously effective. we've prevented 2.1 million prohibited purchasers from purchasing guns. that's 48 domestic abusers every day that have been prohibited. it's a question of building on that success and looking at what it takes to accomplish that success. it doesn't happen overnight and we can take inspiration from the fight that sara led around the original brady law there. >> i was covering congress at the time, i remember. >> we have to stay the course and it's about making the voice heard an
, today trayvon's parents were there in the audience. let's talk about this with gloria borger and jim acosta. there was a compelling story that i wrote about president obama at a father 's day meetin with a bunch of fatherless men who came to the oval office. he had been working with them. the program is called b.a.m., becoming a man. they all signed a father's day card for him and handed it to him. they said they never signed a father's day card because they don't have fathers. president obama said he had never signed a father's day card either. that really is the root of a lot of the problems here. >> it is. and i think this is kind of the most emotional, raw, real president obama that you'll ever see. i mean, this is -- this is someone who clearly identifies with these young men who don't have a father, who feel kind of left out there alone and he had a very clear message to them, which is, no excuses, set goals, work hard. this is a president who once compared himself to trayvon, you know. >> he said, if i had a son -- >> sorry. if i had a son, he would look like trayvon. he said,
. >> that's the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff in an interview with nbc's jim miklashevski today while en route to afghanistan. that was them on the plane. general dempsey saying there he does not personally want u.s. troops to totally withdraw from afghanistan, but if there isn't a signed agreement between our government and the afghan government about u.s. troops staying on, then all u.s. forces will leave. this year. the chairman saying today that after 13 years of that war, u.s. troops accomplished their mission in afghanistan and it would not be a defeat to leave. something really specific seems to have led to today's big news about the war and the end of the war. this is defense secretary chuck hagel. this is him last october in brussels at nato headquarters. he was there meeting with all the other people who have his same job and all the other nato countries. it was the meeting of the nato defense ministers. at that meeting late last year, defense secretary chuck hagel told all the other defense secretaries in nato that by the next time they all got together, the u.s. and
at the impact of the show and the man who held it all together and jim la lange as we remember him today. in honor of her late boyfriend and costar, we are hearing it for the first time. that's next. and it feels like your lifeate revolves around your symptoms, ask your gastroenterologist about humira adalimumab. humira has been proven to work for adults who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief, and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal events, such as infections, lymphoma, or other types of cancer, have happened. blood, liver and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure have occurred. before starting humira, your doctor should test you for tb. ask your doctor if you live in or have been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. tell your doctor if you have had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to in
, jim messina, then campaign manager and plouf, denied him the right to cree yit a first-class political team. apart from the money and publicity, one of the things that will be a challenge for biden if he decides to run -- and my sense is that personally he does -- is the fact that hillary is vacuuming up all the talent. he tried to hire a close aide to michael bloomberg. that was rejected out of hand by the west wing. then he tried to bring in steve richetti, a guy known for his savvy. that was vetoed. finally biden had to go directly to obama and said, look, man, if you want me to do this job in twel, you have to let me have your own people. and even then the president said, look, you can have them as long as he and you stay in your lanes. >> to me that is sad that he has been denied even a fighting chance here. i also am sad, i don't think sad needs necessarily to be the organizing principle here, but, you know, i think political reporters are inherently nostalgic for times gone by. >> right. >> but biden is very much a figure caught in a crossroads with sort of the old democratic po
this an invasion. what exactly are nato officials considering there? >> hi, jim. earlier today the nato secretary general gave a brief statement to the media in which he called on russia to deescalate tensions. take a listen to what he had to say. >> what russia is doing now in ukraine, violates the principles of the united nations charter. it threatens peace and security in europe. russia must stop its military activities and its threats. today we will discuss their implications for european peace and security and for nato's relationship with russia. >> now there are two meetings taking place today here at nato headquarters. the first meeting, a meeting of the north atlantic council. that's the primary decision making body for nato. that meeting we understand is still under way. that will be followed by a meeting by the nato ukraine commission. that meeting taking place at the behest of ukrainian officials. the commission was formed in 1997 with the aim of strengthening military inside the ukraine as well as improving ties between kiev and western europe. now many people see the involvement of n
in the ukraine may put more of a strain on the u.s. and russian relations. jim sciutto is joining us with that side of the story. so, in your mind, does the u.s. have any more plans other than just talking loudly at this point? >> well, that's a good question. in those words, there's a lot of meaning. officials delivering very stark warnings to the russians to be careful not to move in. you heard secretary of state john kerry saying yesterday it would be, in his words, a grave mistake in the russians move in. now you have defense secretary chuck hagel who is traveling saying that russia should not make any moves that could easily be misinterpreted. we know they are watching closely. i think we can assume that they are working very much behind the scenes to deliver that message as well. and that shows that they are concerned. what else can they do beyond those concerns, it's a fair question. we don't know. it's hard to say what else they can do. >> what is the biggest concern? >> the biggest concern is that russia moves in. we've seen this story before. you remember in 2008 when russi
hill. >> you got to get every vote you can. now, they have jim messina and other people out there who know how to do this. we saw is the last time around with republicans in 2012 were completely hapless. >> let's look at the good news for the democrats. let's look at the issues that the president thinks. these are interesting. the latest are facing a challenge in landscape of course in november. but when it comes to almost every major issue, the majority of americans actually do, this is so ironic, given sort of the bad morale out there for the dems. nearly two-thirds want the minimum wage raised to $10.10. two-thirds of the country. on the affordable care act, the majority of americans do say they don't want to get rid of it. they don't want to repeal it. they would rather fix it. this is not republican orthodoxy here. a large majority say the government has a role in reducing income inequality. that's not a republican bugle call. more republicans blame -- more americans blame republicans. the majority of republicans support same-sex marriage. yes. that's changed. more republicans sa
.s. officials. much of the world is on edge right now. let's go over to jim sciutto. he's been following all of these developments. it's sort of reminiscent of the battle days of the cold war. >> no question. you get a clear sense of how concerned administration officials are by the repeated, stern warnings delivered at the highest level to russia. on friday, president obama called russian president vladimir putin. today, we heard it from defense secretary chuck hagel, secretary of state john kerry and jay carney. the message verbatim. do not send russian troops into the ukraine and the u.s. will be watching. this is all as violence broke out on the streets of the ukraine today. today, pa frightening taste of worse-case scenario for the ukraine, the country divided among ethnic lines. adding to the tension, russian warplanes placed on high alert and russian troops mobilizing for military exercises right along the ukraine eastern border. with the obama administration increasingly concerned about russian's intentions, president obama issued a stern warning. >> i urged him not to take any steps
jim clibert of south carolina and long-time advocate of raising minimum wage and also joining us is casie hunt. congressman, i'm curious is this an issue for the democrats or a victory? if you win you win before november, before the house adjourns. if you don't win you talk about it. what is the goal? win or talk about it in the election? >> it is always to win. i would much rather see the people on main street of america, those hard working men and women get the raise they deserve. that's why we are doing this. we believe that to raise the minimum wage will lift a couple of million people out of poverty. it will affect 60% of the people affected are women. so many of the women are heads of households. that is what we want to do. we want to give america a raise and we will worry about the politics of it later. >> i got to talk about it now because i'm not sure this thing can win. you have 199 members. you need 218. you need at least -- how are you going to get the reasonable republicans mostly from the northeast to midwest to vote with you? how do you put the pressure on these gu
, groups like the fellowship, family research council. describes senator jim inhofe, perhaps most anti gay politician, as sort of a mentor and hero. and he is has studied in the united states. these ideas are being sort of broadcast overseas and amplified and taken to a whole new level in uganda. >> inhofe, by the way, we checked with him. he says, you know, he's -- had nothing to do with this legislation. he rejects it. he says i certainly disagree with the controversial legislation that uganda may enact in the coming days. and as i've said before, it is my hope that the country will abandon this unjust and harsh legislation. similar statement coming from other evangelical groups saying it's one thing to be anti gay, if you will. but it's another thing to say that gay people should spend the rest of their lives in jail or even be executed for engaging in homosexual activity. so it seems to me, and correct me if i am wrong, that there may have been some inspiration. but what they're doing in uganda goes far beyond what some of these evangelical groups may have wanted. >> i think you're exa
with eminent domain after the governor approved that. >> jim tarnick, we'll stay on the story. i appreciate your time tonight. thanks for speaking up. congressman lee terry agreed to join us on the program tonight. but because of votes in congress, he was unable to join us this evening. he will appear on this program next week. that's "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. "politicsnation" with reverend al sharpton starts right thought. good evening, rev. >> good evening, ed. and thanks to you for tuning in. i'm live tonight from washington, d.c. tonight's lead, new documents in the chris christie bridge scandal revealed. we're learning more about the actions of key christie aides and allies before, during, and after the lane closings. the information comes from david wildstein. the former bridge official who carried out the lane closings. he's the one who replied "got it" to that now infamous e-mail, "time for some traffic problems in ft. lee." that exchange came to light as part of subpoenaed documents. but a big question has been why did wildstein cross out some material? today the big news. man
was furious that a key money raising and strategic guy, jim messina, seemed to commit to hillary clinton. what joe biden is doing is trying to freeze in place the rest of his people. >> the same instinct, don't talk me out of this. watch what he does with the great barbara walters. here he is on "the view." look what he says when asked about his 2016 intentions by barbara walters who very carefully got him to commit here. watch. >> you have said if she runs for president, you will not run. >> no i have not. >> oh, then tell me what you said. >> the only reason to run for president of the united states, if you truly believe you're in a better position to do what you believe is most needed in the country. i think my knowledge of foreign policy, my engagement with world leaders, my experience is uniquely positions me to be -- to follow through on the agenda barack and i have of bringing up world peace in a way that is real and substantive. i also think the middle class st. the single -- the single focus, what we should be looking at and how to grow it. so whether she runs or not will not affect m
congressman jim mcdermott of washington. first elected in 1989, he's a member of the progressive caucus. he was a leading voice on health care. this was before obamacare, it was when the clinton administration was trying to reform health care. in april 1993, he had a big meeting scheduled at the white house with then first lady hillary clinton. the goal was to get congressman mcdermott on board with the clinton administration's approach to health reform as they tried to get it passed through congress. the day before that meeting, hillary clinton's staff, we now know, sent her this memo prepping her for that meeting with congressman mcdermott, quote, we need to keep him happy and on our side. quote, as staged and presumptuous as that is, you might suggest you throw out all the staff at the end of the meeting to have a private meeting with him. this will signal to him your closeness with him. it's like reading the stage directions on "house of cards" or west wing," less murders. the efforts by the clinton white house to woo certain members of congress are kind of fascinating to read about in
this, but i believe jim mcgrechy appointed mr. samson to an important role at some point. >> david samson has friends on both sides of the aisle. that's certainly a part of the story. >> jim mcgreevey is a bipartisan sort of a guy. that said -- >> not the paragon of ethics in new jersey. >> i don't remember him being investigated by a legislative committee, though. come back to this idea of an ethical problem, this presents what we in the legislature like to call a marcy hochman moment, our legislative council. you do not do anything that even remotely ben you. if we're a part-time legislator, and we are, we cannot vote on a bill that will directly benefit one of our clients. i'm not going to comment on the particulars of those cases because i don't see all the facts, but until such time -- it just strikes me that, again, when you're in that position, your law firm is that closely related to it, there are certainly questions that need to be addressed. i'm sure that he will address them. >> given what had his law firm does and what the port authority does, there's the overlap seems

the united states and other countries. cnn's chief national security correspondent jim sciutto has been looking into this for us. he's got the latest. >> reporter: wolf, this is really the starkest warning we've heard from u.s. officials on syria. it's part of a broader narrative about the evolving terror threat to the u.s. the bottom line, that threat is becoming more diffuse. you have offshoots of al qaeda, home grown terrorists in the u.s. and now with sear yarks veterans of that war, some of them americans, to return home to carry out attacks. >> thank you for the opportunity to be here. >> reporter: today america's top homeland security official said that syria may be the most serious terror threat to the u.s. homeland. >> i would say that for us in national security and homeland security in this government, this particular issue is t the top of list or near the top of the lis for us. we talk about it all the time. we're carefully monitoring the situation. >> reporter: syria's brutal civil war has provided al qaeda-tied terrorist groups the perfect combination of violence and lawle
